Header and Body 1


This device wirelessly measures the extent and properties of biological deposition on the surface of implanted medical devices. It may be used to monitor patients for complications such as thrombus, pannus, and/or pathogenic biofilm at the blood-machine interfaces. It is also capable of identifying endothelialization on successfully implanted medical devices. These detections would allow physicians to better treat patients with implants such as prosthetic heart valve leaflets, catheters, and other vascular implants.
